Non nUI slash commands

Weirdest thing... there were a couple of times tonight that I needed to do a slash command and it wouldn't execute, wouldn't even show in the chat window. Earlier I was able to do /macro... but in ICC I couldn't do /range and /recount toggle or /recount show.

nUI is the latest new addon I have, so I logged out and disabled it. Both commands worked fine then.

I'm old, so tell me very slowly... how should I troubleshoot this quirky behavior?

Was Recount being displayed when you were trying to do the command or was the Recount info panel hidden? I don't know if the command will work if the info panel is hidden.

The Recount/Omen windows were showing in the lower right. Like I said, I'm old, so I wanted to see Recount bigger. That's why I wanted the window to open up... I was thinking it would open in the middle of the screen.

But why didn't my /range command work in ICC?

I think I've always used the dbm /range command and not the recount one. But if the frame it calls up is parented to the one we parent it may cause problems perhaps.

Did I explain it wrong?

One incident was trying to do the /range command... I didn't realize it was a dbm command... when I wanted to stay 12 feet away from other players.

The next incident was at the end of the run, I wanted to see the Recount window in the center of the screen instead of the tiny-sized one grouped with the Omen window.

It was two separate commands to do different things. Neither worked until I disabled nUI.

Oh good grief. I also thought I was having problems with DBM. When you mentioned it, I just checked my addons and it was off! Now the /range command works just fine.

/recount , /recount show or /recount toggle still don't work to show the main Recount window.

You cannot "expand" the recount window while it is in the info panel for a whole host of reasons. Suffice it to say that Recount is locked and parented into the info panel without getting into the painful detail of why you can't zoom the window.

You might consider looking at Skada in lieu of the combination of Recount, Omen and nUI_InfoPanel_DualStats... it does the job of all three in one addon and might solve your problem.

~lol~

I turned 52 last week myself.

Now... that said, I've decided to start counting in weeks, so I'm just 1 year old now.

~grin~

Rofl, same here. Usually I feel the oldest but then a few pop up that surprise you rofl. One of the guys in our guild is in his 50s, and my fiance is getting close to the big 50.
